The new moon is a time of initiation and new beginnings. It is the time to plant a seed of what you want to grow in your life. Making a wish, an intention, a promise, or a vow is a common custom. It is believed that as the moon grows, that your intention or goal will too usually by the time the moon completes its cycle and returns full circle to new again.

This New Moon in Scorpio is all about healing and feeling kindness, especially for yourself. Be gentle about what you think, as we know that your thoughts are powerful. This new moon is also about forgiveness, think about the last few weeks, did you act out of anger or were you petty with someone at work/home? Were you harsh with yourself? Time to forgive.

Start by forgiving yourself first. Forgive yourself for anything and everything. Forgive yourself for all that you did or didn’t do. Forgive yourself for what you didn’t know and what you know today. - via foreverconscious

If you are ready to partake on a new moon ritual, here are some common things Brujas do at home to participate…

  • Draw up a bath for yourself (or set yourself up for a nice shower!)— the key is to use some sea salt and if you can swing it, flower petals. This is so that you can cleanse yourself of any negative energy, asking the ancestors to please remove any blockages! You can also burn some sage or palo santo, use it around your body and your personal space.

  • Next do a grounding meditation, this is a major key MOB! Here’s a 1 min version

  • Set up your alter, aka a spot in the house where you can sit in front of, that you can put up some flowers, candles, crystals and any spiritually relevant objects.

  • Grab a journal (great way to start one!) and write down your biggest wants and wishes, pie in the sky type of stuff… this is not the moment to limit yourself. But remember that what you’re doing is building alongside the universe, and that while the ideas and wants might seem out of reach right now — you are committed to making these things happen for yourself!

  • Make sure that post new moon ritual, you’re keeping your wishes top of mind… and figuring out how to build towards making them a reality. Look back at what you wrote on the Full Moon on November 23rd!


Enjoy it MOB! You deserve it!
